Cat 988K Rebuild for Torssosen Murskaus Oy

Torssosen Murskaus Oy chose a second life to the first Cat 988K wheel loader imported to Finland

Torssosen Murskaus Oy decided to give their Cat 988K wheel loader a second life with a Cat Certified Powertrain Rebuild.

With a Cat Certified Powertrain Rebuild you can restore your machine's productivity and reliability to a new level, with the cost of approximately 40-50% compared to a similar new machine. Cat Certified Rebuild of a used machine is also a sustainable choice for the environment due to its much smaller carbon footprint. After a major rebuild, the machine is also covered by Caterpillar's 1-year or 10,000-hour warranty. After a major overhaul, the machine is also covered by Caterpillar's 1-year or 10,000-hour factory warranty.

"We considered for a long time various kinds of options to replace our existing machine. We ended up choosing the Cat Certified Rebuild for our current machine due to cost savings, extended productive hours and smaller carbon footprint. We are happy to give another life to Finland's first 988K," says Jukka Torssonen.
